CANTON HIGH SCHOOL 

CANTON, MASSACHUSETTS 



DEDICATION 

With grateful hearts we, the Class of Nineteen 
Hundred Fifty-one, take great pride in dedicating this 
yearbook to our parents whose understanding and constant 
guidance have made possible these four happy years in 
Canton High School. 

We are not unappreciative of your untiring 
efforts in our quest for learning, of your participation in 
our successes and failures, and your constant faith in us. 
We realize the sacrifices that you have made that we might 
accomplish this first milestone on the road to knowledge. 

We, then, dedicate most affectionately to you, our 
beloved Mothers and Fathers, as a fitting tribute to your 
inspiration and guidance this volume of THE ECHO.

Dear Diary — 1947-1948 

Well, Diary, this was the year that We, 
the class of '51, had looked forward to with a 
great deal of anxiety. We entered into the 
mysterious halls of Canton High School as 
Freshmen. There was a great deal of excite- 
ment as we searched frantically for rooms 
seven and eight which were to be our home- 
rooms. The memorizing of the other rooms, 
along with the subjects associated with them, 
seemed hopeless and a difficult task for a few 
weeks. 

We finally became acclimated to 
the new high-school routine, and were 
able, with the help of our class advisers, 
Miss Bertrand and Mr. Scully, to choose 
our officers who were Harry Josephson, 
president ; Anthony Andreotti, vice-president ; 
Charlotte Hammond, secretary; and Velma 
Webster, treasurer. 

This year being quite uneventful, 
when June rolled around we all anticipated 
becoming Sophomores the following Septem- 
ber. Therefore adieu until then. 
Dear Diary — 1948-1949 

The summer passed, we again entered 
C.H.S., but now as sophisticated Sophomores, 
with Miss Johnson and Mr. Howard our class 
advisers. We lost a few of our old classmates 
and added a few new members. Miss 
O'Donnell succeeded Miss Leary in the com- 
mercial department and as Echo adviser. 
Miss Lewis took over the girls' physical 
education classes. 

This year we chose as our class officers 
Anthony Andreotti, president; Harry Joseph- 
son, vice-president; Charlotte Hammond, 
secretary; and Everett Knowles, treasurer. 

In April we held our first big social 
event, the Sophomore Hop. Dancing to the 



sweet notes of the Starlighters Orchestra, we 
the "not"-students of Arthur Murray, en- 
joyed ourselves counting 1-2-3, as we "walked" 
around the hall. 

By the time spring came, everyone was 
suffering from the usual spring fever, so it 
was decided we would have a Class Day at 
Nantasket. The weather being exceptionally 
good, we all had a very enjoyable time ( except 
for the "tummy aches" and flaming red 
sunburns) . 

Once again we said farewell and de- 
parted for the all-too-short vacation. 
Dear Diary — 1949-1950 

At last, we were noble Juniors and 
very proud. As soon as we were settled we 
elected, under the guidance of our advisers 
Mrs. Lincoln and Mr. Dowson, our class 
officers. They were David Cole, president; 
Anthony Andreotti, vice-president; Loretta 
Russell, secretary; and John Coughlan, treas- 
urer (later succeeded by Angelina Silva. ) 

The first event of this year was the 
class ring selection under the wise judgment 
of the following committee: Velma Webster, 
chairlady, Shirley Rothwell, Esther Marathas, 
Angelina Silva, Charlotte Hammond, and 
Lorraine Johnson. We, the class of '51, dis- 
played the best looking circlets of metal ever 
seen, or to be seen, around C.H.S. 

In March our class, eager for some fun, 
scraped up skits, music, and jokes, and pre- 
sented a most successful Minstrel Show under 
the able direction of fun-loving Angelina Silva 
and her cast. 

The climax of the year was our Prom. 
Charlotte Hammond, General Chairlady, and 
the committees headed by Horace Mackness, 
Orchestra; Lorraine Johnson, Decorations; 
Tliclma Brancliini, Tickets; and Sandra

Sparrell, Refreshments; undertook the entire 
responsibility and saw that it was a marve- 
lous success. Dancing to the melodies of the 
Rhythm Kings, under the pastel streamers, it 
was a night never to be forgotten. 

At graduation, where David Cole 
showed his ability as Marshal, seven mem- 
bers of the class received Pro Merito awards. 
They were: David Cole, William Kreutal, 
Charlotte Hammond, Lorraine Johnson, 
Frances Kendall, Everett Knowles, and 
Velma Webster. 

To bring to a culmination our third 
and wonderful year, we again chose Nan- 
tasket as the spot for Class Day. We enjoyed 
ourselves to the 'nth degree and gazed into 
the future of September. 
Dear Diary — 1950-1951 

Now, my dear Diary, the most glorious 
year of all has arrived. This year we shall never 
forget for numerous reasons. On the seventh 
day of September, our greatest desire was 
realized — we were Seniors. To add to our 
thrill of being the superiors, we entered into 
the spacious halls of the dazzling new Canton 
High for the first time. The gym, the 
cafeteria, the wall lockers, the chair-desks, 
and loads of room were all too much for us to 
digest in one day. It was all like a fairy tale, 
and we the class of '51, were to be the first 
to graduate from this fine seat of learning. 

Room 1 (the Student Activity Room) 
was our homeroom, with Miss Roach taking 
over her usual duty as Senior Adviser. We 
also had a new and much-liked guidance 
adviser, Mr. Welch, whose untiring hours of 
consultation we certainly appreciated. 

We placed our class in the capable 
hands of Hugh Ward, president; Philip 
Mitchell, vice-president; Sandra Sparrell, sec- 
retary; and Kenneth Croft, treasurer. 

This being the Seniors' last chance to 
compete in sports, we certainly made a fine 
record. The football squad showed their 
definite ability and were undefeated and 
untied until the heartbreaking loss of 7-6 at 
the Turkey-Day Game. 

The field hockey team had a very fine 
season with only one game being lost. 

December 1 was the date chosen for 
the big social event of the year, the Senior 
Prom. This being the first dance ever to be 
held in the new gym, I he task of planning 
was difficult; but it is easily said that there 
has never been such a successful dance in the 
'51er's history. With the mammoth Christ- 
mas tree in the center of the hall and the red 
and green streamers, bells, wreaths, and 
snowmen radiating around it, the gym was 
transformed into a winter wonderland, while 
we danced to the graceful notes of Eddie 
Ivaldi's Orchestra. 



In January we held our Athletic Ban- 
quet, one of the biggest and most talked about 
social happenings of the year. After the deli- 
cious and hearty meal the various coaches 
presented the awards. Jackets were awarded 
to Loretta Russell, Janet Mathews, Rhoda 
Binley, Charlotte Hammond, Angelina Silva, 
and Shirley Rothwell for field hockey; and to 
Harry Josephson, Philip Mitchell, Anthony 
Andreotti, Robert Colp, Russell Caswell, 
Charles Moore, Hugh Ward, David Cole, 
Kenneth Croft, and James Hannon for foot- 
ball. Letters were won by Kenneth Croft, 
and Robert Colp for track and by Harry 
Josephson, James Hannon, Robert Colp, 
and Alfred Fairfield for basketball. Sandra 
Sparrell, Lorraine Johnson, Loretta Russell, 
Janet Mathews, Charlotte Hammond, and 
Shirley Rothwell received letters for their 
excellent and untiring job of cheering our 
boys on to victory. 

The basketball season closed with not 
too many wins, but we all have happy 
memories of having had one year in the new 
gym. The girls' basketball team did well, 
considering that it was the first year that the 
girls have had a chance to play the game. 

In April our actors and actresses pre- 
sented "Almost Summer," a comedy in three 
acts by Christopher Sergei. Directed by the 
able and ever-so-patient Mrs. Dana, it was 
really a Broadway Hit. Everett Knowles 
starred as Paul Jones with Charlotte Ham- 
mond as his gal; Isabelle Minkle and Gilbert 
Olden played the part of his folks, Mr. and 
Mrs. Jones; John Callahan was his pesty 
brother. Junior; Janet Mathews, Lilha, played 
as Junior's "puppy love;" Lorraine Johnson 
acted as Mary with James Hannon, Jack, her 
sweetheart; Mr. Smudgely, the High School 
Principal, was played by Richard Banian; 
and Nancy Berge took the part of Anna, 
the maid. 

With the Senior Banquet as the high- 
light of our Senior Class Week excitement, we 
close the book on our social activities. As 
we proudly walk to the platform for our 
diplomas, in our hearts remain the marvelous 
memories of our four never-to-be-forgotten 
years in C.H.S. 

With our now acquired knowledge and 
guidance, we hope to achieve as much success 
in our years ahead as we have in the past. 
The years ahead look challenging as We, the 
class of '51, must leave the halls of learning 
for a new life of responsibility. We extend 
our most sincere appreciation to the faculty 
and to all those who have worked to make our 
stay at Canton High School a most lucrative 
one. We now bid a heartbreaking farewell 
to all . . . Frances Kendall

CLASS SONG 

(Tunc fo Harbor Lights) 

Sadly we leave you now, 

But memories will linger ever, 

The future beckons us, and bids us say adieu. 

The knowledge we have gained, 

Within your walls will leave us never, 

And it will guide us on, to our horizons new. 

We'll always cherish the ideals of our school. 

The honor, faith and courage, truth and golden rule 

Let's praise our Canton High 
The Alma Mater we are leaving. 
The time to go is nigh, 
And so we say "Good-bye."

Class Prophecy 

It is almost a half century now since the class of 1951 graduated from Canton High. 
Through the years, every class member has in some way made the headlines. Anne and I have 
faithfully kept a scrapbook about the class, containing news clippings about each one and a 
few sentimental jingles that we couldn't resist writing. Come, look over our shoulders as we 
turn the pages.

As the 1950 football season rolled toward com- 
pletion, the big question heard around town was: 
"When was Canton High last defeated?" 

It was found that Canton had completely 
navigated the 1949 season with no defeats, had suffered 
hut one tie, and had continued their great streak all t he 
way through the 1950 schedule (except the last, with 
Stoughton) still undefeated. 

The 195(1 club, a veteran outfit, opened the 
season with a 7 to win over Needham, with big Harry 
Josephson throwing a pass to rangy Bob Colp for the 
score and another to l)iek Berardi for the point after. 
Then Canton laced Oliver Ames to the tune of 27 to 
with the second team seeing a lot of service. Next 
came Walpole, but the boys in the blue and white 
proved no match for those in green and white. The 
final score read Canton 25 — Walpole 0. 



People around town were now becoming a ware 
that Canton had a better than average team and a 
great many of them followed the boys on their night 
trek to Newburyport. In a really great game Canton 
emerged the victor by the count of 6 to with Phil 
Mitchell doing the scoring and with the heroes of the 
game being too numerous to mention. Next in line 
as Canton's victims came Whitman, 13 to 0, and then 
North Attleboro, 19 to 0. The Whitman game was 
historic if for no other reason than that the officials out- 
gained both football teams in the ratio of about ten to 
one with Canton the chief sufferer; and, also, for the 
unique manner in which Hob Colp pounced upon a ball 
to score an important touchdown. 

In 1919 Nantucket left their little isle to play 
a game at Canton; so 1950 saw Canton returning the 
visit with expectations of repeating their earlier rout 




of the "Islanders." Certainly, no one expected little 
Nantucket to cross the hallowed line, but cross it they 
did after a titanic struggle and Nantucket was in 
possession of the ball and threatening again as the 
game ended. Canton won 13 to 6 but they really had a 
scare. It turned out to be quite an excursion as bad 
weather forced the team and its many followers to 
spend three nights in the old whaling town. 

Back in Canton, the boys were looking past 
Abington to the climatic Stoughton game. Stoughton, 
after a first-game defeat at the hands of Class C 
Champion Braintree, had set a phenomenal record for 
scoring and was rated the best Orange and Black (cam 
in three decades. Abington went down 26 to to put 
Canton on the threshold of their first undefeated 
untied team since 1935. Stoughton, however, stood in 
the way and the result was that the greatest crowd 
ever to see this annual classic was on hand when the 
two teams ran out on the soggy field. It was a terrific 
game all the way, surpassing even the most rabid 
footballer's imagination. Stoughton won 7 to (i and the 
score tells pretty well just how closely matched the two 
clubs were that morning. Richie Klim and Captain 
Baeta stood out for Stoughton while Harry Josephson 



was Canton's outstanding man on the field. Charlie 
Moore, Joe Butler, and Captain Tony Andreotti stood 
out like beacons in the Canton forward wall. So came 
to an end the longest unbeaten streak in Canton's 
football history. Looking back over the year, many 
boys are worthy of mention: In the backfield, such 
important cogs as Dickie Berardi, lMiil Mitchell, 
Hughie Ward, Kenny Croft, and Billy Healy; and 
linemen to remember include Charlie Moore, Joe 
Butler, Walter Strumski, Fran Podgurski, Bob Colp, 
Jim Hannon, Kris Bainton, Buss Caswell, Art Bougas, 
Joe Nardelli, and Joe Gecewicz. 

When will Canton again have such a Team? ! .

The 1951 Yearbook Staff got under 
way on their big project a few weeks after the 
opening of the school year. The co-editors 
appointed were Everett Knowles and Frances 
Kendall and upon their shoulders rested the 
task of editing the yearbook. At our first 
meeting, Miss O'Donnell related to us the 
many difficulties encountered in undertaking 
the publication of a yearbook, chief among 
them being the financial burden. 

From January to March, Miss 
O'Donnell's room was a beehive of activity. 
The Sponsor Committee, headed by Shirley 
Rothwell, and the Advertising Committee, 
under the leadership of Philip Mitchell, plus 
their energetic commit Ice members canvassed 
the town and did a marvelous job in securing 
advertisements and sponsors. 

School routine was never busier than 
when Purdy, the school photographer, came 
to take the many pictures needed to give a 
pictorial view of the happenings at Canton 



High School. We are grateful to Mr. Kelle 
our art supervisor, for the suggestions and 
help he gave to the Photography Staff. They 
spent hours cutting, pasting, and working on 
the layouts to make this the most attractive 
yearbook issued. 

The secretaries deserve a special 
"thank you" for the many hours spent in 
typing the copy for the printer and in the 
arduous task of proofreading. 

To secure additional funds, a successful 
Minstrel Show was put on in March under 
the direction of Mr. and Mrs. William 
Donovan. Angelina Silva was general chair- 
man and she very capably handled all the 
many details. 

Finally, alter many pleasant hours of 
diligent labor, the book went to press and we 
could relax and rest after the preparation of a 
book which we hope will compare favorably 
with those of previous years.

Thanks 



The editors and staff wish to extend their thanks 
to the many people who have helped us in making this yearbook 
a success. The greatest problem, the financial one, was partially 
solved by our efficient and energetic advertising and sponsor 
solicitors, and partially by the successful C.H.S. Minstrel Show 
under the able direction of Mr. and Mrs. William Donovan. 
We also wish to extend our sincere appreciation to all our 
advertisers, sponsors, and business patrons who so generously 
donated to our yearbook. 

The Staff wishes to thank the faculty members for 
their assistance: Miss O'Donnell, our adviser, whose wisdom and 
guidance has enabled us to bring this yearbook to its successful 
completion; to Mr. Kelle and his talented group of artists to 
whom we are indebted for the marvelous art layouts; to Purely 
for their fine photography; and to Mr. Emil Bazzy, our publisher, 
for his suggestions and advice.
